Attaining a master of architectural degree and working intensively in the same field, Titka Seddighi’s passion for photography has allowed her to harmonize the two disciplines and to translate geometry and intensity of light into a workable exposure.
Through her experience, she has gained appreciation for elaborated monuments, embedded within myths, forgotten or overlooked. Whether discovering the secret landscape of the most obscure mountain hideaways or framing the essence of our modern society, Titka has employed her camera as a tool to reconnect us with the past and to capture a virtual symphony of a vast history of an amazing civilization.
Titka has a strong conviction that pictures must come from contact with objects at the time and place of taking. At such times, she relies on intuitive, perceptual responses to guide her.
“One does not think during a creative work. But one has a background of years, learning methods to see, to evaluate and to experience possibly different ideologies. Then, there is the moment of creation, the focusing of all you know into the moment. Awareness is so constricted that any chance of change is not even recognized.” She says.
This solo exhibition is a collection of her observation of Inca monuments and cultural beauty of sacred valley in the Andes of Peru.
